Tip or Trend Tuesday: Handy dandy masculine wear tips and trends

Today I thought I’d help out my masculine readers with some great infographics from AK FEDEAU and The Art of Manliness to assist you with your wedding day ensemble. Whether you are looking to wear a 3-piece or two-button suit, or a formal tuxedo, get to know your menswear before you go shopping. This will make for a quick and easy shopping experience for you and your attendants. Don’t know how to tie a bow tie or a traditional necktie? Check out the visuals below and nail it on your wedding day. Finally, the basics on polishing your shoes. Make those bad boys shine to complete your wedding day look.

The rumor around menswear is that double-breasted jackets are back, courtesy of movies like The Great Gatsby and shows like Downton Abbey. The other trend I want to share with you comes from the pages of a great many wedding blogs and photographers…super fun socks for the groom and attendants. So, here’s some great guides and how-tos for you along with some wedding day ensemble inspiration.

Well, it’s been a good while since I did a bit for our masculine counterparts and this Stunner Thursday is all about masculine wedding looks no matter gender or orientation. As with life, masculinity transcends both genders and this blog embraces that continuum. So, without further ado, here is a gathering of some of my favorite masculine looks from across the web as well as two style sets (formal and casual) I have put together for your masculine winter look. Enjoy and remember to stop by tomorrow for my roundup of Etsy goodness based on this week’s posts.
